    please renew Hell on Wheels for season 3. It’s a amazing and exiting show with all what a movie must have (the good, the bad and the ugly….. ok, bad and ugly in once as Mr.Swede 😉 ) All the Actors plays her role absolutely credible and inthusiastic. Storys about the Wild West are so rare, so we need this in TV, because it’s a part of human history 😉

    OMG….have loved this show since inception. Photography, characters, surrealism, cinematography, historical, conflicts, strength and determination, romance and I found myself talking to the TV:) Haven’t done that since DEADWOOD. BUT, hugely disappointed at the end with the murder of the heroine, Lily. Hope it is not to be. Great series….PLEASE RENEW for another year. Hoping in some way that you bring back Lily. If not….I guess I will have to go back to reading!
